    M600 - Too Wet (Need Help)

    Hi all, i just bought a M600 (with EF nib) on amazon. Until now i am used to the new Parker IM models with a F-nib which i really love. (after removing babies bottom) However, the ink flow on the M600 is much too high, it eats all the definition in my handwriting and produces hard corners on the egdes of the lines, even with the EF nib. I read some other threads with the same problematics, but didnt come to a satisfying result. This is what i got so far: Ink: Changing ink is not an option, since the ink is important to me (Montblanc Midnight Blue & Pelikan Tanzanite are prefered!). What i dont get is, that people say Pelikan Inks are very dry. This is not the case with the "Premium Edelstein Tanzanite", this thing ist extremly wet, not usable at all. How can they make Premium Inks not fitting to the Premium Pens inkflow wise. So i should use the cheap 4001 with a 250€ Pen, makes sense to me So, i have to use the Montblanc Midnight Blue. I also tried deluting the ink with destilled water, but no major effect until the ink gets too light for my taste. Paper: I use Clairefontaine 90g Nib: I`m not sure if grinding the nib to a smaller size would help here. What do you think, i heard the Pelikan Service do such things for free? I also tried out a M400 in EF, it was exactly the same size and ink flow, so its no specivic problem on this M600 pen. Writing technique: I`m writing quite relaxed with not much pressure. The angle is more flat, but this does not effect the ink flow negatively. Writing sample: here is a compairison, check out the red marked borders, looks ugly and comes from too much ink. Can you help me out? Thanks for reading, cheers
